Eagles lose, but not in our eyes; Tiger set to return

By ROY LANG III, Journal Sports

Another week, another profit for The Locks.

Although we made money on the Super Bowl, loyal followers had to feel a little disappointed. We had Kenneth Gainwell as the game’s first touchdown scorer at 23-1 and an anytime touchdown scorer at +360. He nabbed the first touchdown of the game, but it was overturned by replay. That gave way to Jalen Hurts, who we also had in both aspects, but the 8-1 and +100 wasn’t quite as sweet.

Nevertheless, we cap another stellar football season in the green.

Speaking of, it’s all golf this week. The PGA Tour value was picked clean by the time Tuesday arrived. However, we shake things up with some props at Riviera. I won’t have an official pick on Tiger Woods, because “to miss the cut” is a staggering -200, but I don’t see how he makes the weekend.


All bets are measured in units. For instance, if your normal bet on a game is $100, that is one unit. If the bet is listed as .2 units, it’s a $20 bet.

Best line (as of Tuesday) is listed in parenthesis. Find the best price — one key to being a successful sports bettor! Shop around! Remember this is a VALUE-based system, so don’t settle for a price significantly less than the one listed. And jump on better prices!
